Linux News Today: SME Server 9.1 Linux Launches with Windows 10 Domain Support, Based on CentOS 6.7
Koozali, through Terry Fage, was pleased to announce the immediate availability for download of the final release of SME Server 9.1 server-oriented Linux operating system.
Based on the CentOS 6.7 operating system, which in turn is derived from the freely distributed sources of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) OS and supported with security patches and software updates until 2020, SME Server 9.1 brings numerous new features and improvements.
SME Server 9.1 was designed for deployment on small- and medium-sized business servers, providing companies with support for Windows 10 domains. It includes the latest OpenSSL packages from the upstream CentOS distribution, along with all the updates and security patches released as of December 9, 2015.
“SME Server is intended for use on servers in small and medium businesses and is based on CentOS. The latest release, SME Server 9.1, provides users with an update to the distribution’s 9.x series and is based on CentOS 6.x,” said Terry Fage. “The Koozali team recommends that you start moving workloads from SME Server 8 to SME Server 9.1.”
Highlights of SME Server 9.1
Prominent features of SME Server 9.1 include Microsoft Windows 10 support for SME Domain, a new functionality that lets you use a Dummy NIC for the internal network interface, the ability to set the frequency of the update checking functionality for smecontribs via the server-manager tool, and removal of the deprecated SSLv3.
Since the Release Candidate build, the SME Server developers have only managed to fix a language syntax error in the Anaconda installer, as well as to make the USB Install work again. All users of SME Server 8.x and 9.0 series are urged to upgrade their systems to SME Server 9.1 as soon as possible.
